Image Comics announced Tuesday the publisher will bring FEAR AGENT, the science-fiction odyssey by Rick Remender, Tony Moore, and Jerome Opeña—back to print as a series of master edition trade paperbacks. Each trade paperback will collect ten issues and feature never-before-seen scripts, variant covers, designs, and concept art.
“I chronicled the hardest ten years of my life through Heath Huston and his drunken plight to save eternity and couldn’t be more excited to share our love letter to EC Comics with a new audience,” said Remender. “The series is drenched in love from Tony Moore, Jerome Opeña and some of the best artists in the world.”
FEAR AGENT first made waves when Remender famously described it, in an interview with Comic Book Resources, as their response to a sci-fi genre that’d “lost its stones.” Heralded as an addictive homage to the popular sci-fi adventure of the ’50s, FEAR AGENT was the series that catapulted Remender’s reputation for action-packed sci-fi with heartstring-tugging character building.
“Rick and Jerome are the collaborators of a lifetime, and we all poured our blood, sweat, and tears into these pages, sometimes literally. This series was a hard-fought labor of love for the genre and the pantheon of mid-century comic book titans who continue to inspire us the most, and I personally could not be more proud of it,” said Moore.
About FEAR AGENT:
The adventure unfolds when down-and-out alien exterminator Heath Huston stumbles upon an extraterrestrial plot to commit genocide against the human species, he must put down the bottle and resume his role as a peacekeeper…the last Fear Agent.
“Working on Fear Agent was some of the most fun I’ve ever had in comics and it’s great to see the book get the recognition it deserves all these years later. I’m eternally grateful to Rick and Tony for inviting me along to collaborate with them and it’s an honor to have my name associated with the book in any way,” said Opeña.
FEAR AGENT: FINAL EDITION, VOL. 1 hits comic book stores on Wednesday, April 25th.
